FUNDRAISING for tears // tears publication
WHY you should help
Art publications are pricey, but they give artists a huge bump of recognition, visibility and reach. The physicality of publications also allows for a new understanding of the work by both artist and reader.
Your purchase will help fund this publication to become a reality and you’ll also get some original art in your home at a great deal!
As Yoffy Press says “To hold a book of art in your hands - a truly beautiful, thoughtful art object - is visceral. A photograph is a story. A collection of photographs is an adventure.
Let's go on a beautiful adventure together.”
Help me to make this publication a reality by purchasing a work of art to support my fundraising goal of $15,000.
Currently Raised: $3,200
This means I need
150 people to each purchase a $100 collage from my archives.
30 people to each purchase a $500 framed collage from 100 Days.
If you are interested in further options, please contact me directly regarding requests for unique commissioned collages, private collage workshops or to inquire regarding additional collages available for purchase.
tears // tears is an upcoming publication of recent collages by artist Serrah Russell published by Yoffy Press.
In tears // tears, Serrah Russell uses collage as a ritual, a meditation, and an act of protest. Using art as the ground floor, Russell creates a foundation to process her surroundings and experiences, a process which began during a political turn that rattled her and became a life raft to sanity. To tear and to be torn. To mourn and to act. To listen and to be heard.
tears // tears is an extension of Russell's 100 Days of Collage project, which was developed as a response to the first days of the Trump presidency.
To fundraise for this publication, I’m offering HUGE discounts on recent and past works of original, one-of-a-kind collages. All collages are created using torn and cut magazine images and are mounted on 14”x17” archival white paper.
